BioWare released the patchnotes for SWTOR Game Update 6.3.1, coming up on June 29th. This patch brings back the SWTOR Nightlife event, a Double XP event and a number of fixes and improvements!

SWTO 6.3.1 is more of a service patch with no real new content being added to the game. As per BioWare’s standards patches with more than one “dot” between the numbers are smaller updates with no new story content.

Highlights

The main highlight of 6.3.1 is the return of the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event. This is one of SWTOR’s seasonal events. It appears once every year, usually around the Summer.

I’m working on a new Nightlife 2021 edition Guide. Until it is ready, you can read the 2020 version to get you started.

The 2021 edition of Nightlife starts with the release of the 6.3.1 patch on June 29th and ends on August 10th 2021.

The other big news from 6.3.1 is the return of one of the most popular “events” in SWTOR – Double XP. Starting today (June 29th) and until July 13th you can level up your alts twice as fast thanks to this event.

Both the Nightlife and Double XP events will start and end at noon GMT (12:00 UTC).

Below you can read the full patch notes for SWTOR Update 6.3.1. There are a large number of great quality of live improvements included in this update. Now that I am reading some of them, I start to wonder why it took the devs so long to implement them.
